    Auto submission

    Asked by ipcfix on May 06, 2015 at 04:39 PM


    I would like to add auto submission in my form, like as WORK ORDER NUMBER in right of top the attached file. Also I need to customize the submission start number. Please tell me the best way for my favor.

    Adding a submission number in your form that works as WORK ORDER NUMBER , we do have a Submission Counting Widget,  but I am not sure if that option would fill your expectations.


    However, I would recommend to use the Unique ID field to generate serial numbers on the form.

    From the Widget select Unique ID, as below inicated.

    You are also able to modify index from the tool bar on top.(2):


    I hope this helps to solve issue.
